Size: 2.3 Linear feet
Summary: The papers of artist and English professor Dudley Huppler (1917-1988) measure 2.3 linear feet and date from 1942-1987. The papers document Huppler's unique practice of pen-an-ink stippling, related business dealings, and his friendships with high-profile mid-twentieth century Americans in the arts. Included is biographical material, photographs of animals, Huppler's stippled drawings of animals, and correspondence with artists Todd Bolander, W.H. Auden, John Wilde, George Platt Lynes and novelist Flannery O'Connor, among others. Additional correspondence documents business negotiations with a card company about reproductions of Huppler's often animal-based work on their products. There is also a book illustrated by Wilde, with an inscription in which Wilde refers to Huppler as "doll baby," a familiar nickname that appears elsewhere in correspondence.
